Take a second Lou


THE name's Bond... Lou Bond.
No? I'm not surprised, as this 1974 release - his only album - was caught up in record industry politics and only received a low-key vinyl release up until Monday's reissue, before Bond drifted off into anonymity.
It's a real shame, as Lou Bond has a real timeless quality to it, mixing sweeping horn and string Marvin Gaye circa What's Going On-sounding tracks with Bob Dylan acoustic guitar politicking.
Added to this Lou himself has a distinctive tone to his vocals, which borders on freestyle poetry at times.
An unpolished gem which still strikes a chord 36 years on, please don't let Lou Bond be ignored second time around.
